March…just madness

It’s ALREADY March…so even though a lot of us are still having crazy weather we know Spring HAS to come soon …

I am still working on my blog post about Nashville, and Daytona…so you will see that soon…but here is March’s Quilt & Pillow offerings…and a little Spring decorating…It is so much fun decorating the bed each month! What do you think about this idea?

I made two wool pillows with homespun backing…and we patterned the Ocean Wave antique quilt on the bed…IMG_0959IMG_0956Do you like the pillows together or apart?…Did you see on IG…this pic of my table…I found a bunch more of those green vases…so added them all around the house…like by my nightstand…they are literally 2-4$each…this quilt is an antique lone star.IMG_0817


This quilt is much smaller than my bed…but I just use it as an accent…the under quilt is the main quilt for warmth…If you want to make the quilt bigger…just add more blocks or a big border…I think we have extra white to make the borders much wider in the kits…IMG_0965So If you wish to order this months quilt and pillow you can do so HERE…just an FYI…if you order the kit for the pillows or just the quilt or both..the pattern is FREE…if you just want the pattern it is $12 and includes both pillows and the quilt.  The pillows are wool appliqué on wool background…the wool was the perfect color, there was no flannel that wasn’t olive toned…so that is why I used wool on wool…the backing is homespun…Also keep in mind that the fabric will be a bit more saturated, not faded like the antique…but the fabrics that we picked out and the wool pillows will go nicely together….much better than mine do here…but I don’t have to have everything matchy, matchy.


Now…just another design to decorate the couch…This is a flannel with wool applique pillow. ( I used the same pillow form from the Let’s Snuggle pillow)…I will get a video/tutorial out next on putting in a zipper in the back- so you do not have to have a bunch of pillows and can keep switching them out using a zipper.IMG_0975

I pulled out the black and white buffalo check pillows…IMG_0979

Also looks nice on a chair…or a bench when you walk in the room…  Click HERE if you wish to order this pillow.IMG_0973

Jeter just can’t help himself…he knows you all want to see him too!IMG_0971


I love go antiquing/junking…AND….I cannot believe I found this old truck and trailer for $40!  IMG_0966

Also…I noticed…Jess has planned a whole category for March on our site…see what else the shop has for you HEREStay warm, and dry my friends…

OH! One last thing….I got a couple of comments that I have not posted much about “Baby O”yet…well.. you are all in for a treat here…remember…he is only 2 1/2 months, borns 3 weeks early, when you watch this…being MiMi is the best…now that I am back home I can go see this is person!  If it gets above zero degrees soon…

  1. I really like your pillows with cursive writing. Have you thought about putting the whole alphabet in cursive and other alphabet designs and selling them as a pattern. I would be the first to buy it. Always looking for different lettering to use my wool with.
